I agree, we should all take a step back and hold a few more beer summits and international apology tours.


When Donny is gone Pence will have his apology tour and you can bank on it.

Trump is set to depart the White House later today for a 17-day vacation at his golf club in New Jersey. During the 2016 campaign, Trump repeatedly promised that he would refuse to take vacation in order to keep doing the work of the American public.
 
“Can you believe that, with all of the problems and difficulties facing the US, President Obama spent the day playing golf.” Mr Trump tweeted in October 2014. “Worse than Carter.”
 
At another point, Mr Trump lamented the taxpayer expense for Mr Obama’s games, tweeting, “We pay for Obama’s travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies. Then we pay for his golf.” 
 
"I would rarely leave the White House because there's so much work to be done," Trump said in July 2015. "I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off."
 

"I'm going to be working for you," Trump said in August 2016. "I'm not going to have time to go play golf."

 
Trump has spent nearly 22 percent of his days in office at one of his golf properties to play for some portion of the day. Obama played golf for 3 percent of the time he was president. In the first three months of the year, the Secret Service spent $35,000 just on golf cart rentals at the Trump-owned Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, CBS News reported. Politico has calculated that a weekend trip to Mar-a-Lago, where Mr Trump frequently retreats to play golf, costs taxpayers about $3 million.

And I'll say the same thing I said during the Bush and Obama administrations: presidents don't take vacations.  At best, they travel and the job follows.

I thought he just handed the keys to Ben Carson and asked him not to burn the place down with his incendiary personality?

Just as disingenuous as you've always been. That 17 day vacation just so happens to coincide with major renovations to the White House heating and air conditioning system and other work. It also coincides with a congressional recess. The White House calls it a "working vacation" while the media and its useful fools like you try to get away with this mischaracterization.

The media ignores it when a Dem President is golfing just as it ignores the coffins coming back from war and the homeless when a Dem is president.

While I agree (and was just thinking the same thing) Dear Donny thought differently 1 1/2 years ago.

Hahahahahahahahahahaa. Beautiful excuse. Must be why he called it a dump when he first moved in.

Again, why was it different for the last guy?

Hypocrisy rules the day.

Obama close Gitmo yet?  Bush still eschewing nation-building international adventures?  Do the 80's want their foreign policy back or not?  Is or isn't Brownie doing a heckuva job?  And Clinton's contradicted herself so she's managed at one time or another to hold each side of every topic you can think of.

 

Can we just skip the bull ****, and agree that while Trump's far more of an !@#$ than most, all politicians are two-faced?

Only to lmao.

And with the hope he grows a brain and take his job seriously.

DC Tom
Have I ever said politicians weren't 2 faced?

I believe that is what I have been trying to portray here.

Slamming one guy while applauding or ignoring the other is hypocritical.

Obama did some good and bad
George W did some good and bad
Clinton did some good and bad

We agree that Dearest Donny hasn't accomplished much on his own.

The real issue imo is the Dividend States of America. Until we are united the sos will continue.
